Description

Continental Drift is an audacious route that climbs up a wide white streak twenty feet right of The Black Solitaire. Start on bulbous rock with big moves between big holds. Take your rest at the break then bear hug the block to access the thin pocketed climbing above.

The long body crux involves some serious crimping, body tension, balance, and a deadpoint to an undercling pocket. Or a slight variation to the right that follows a faint path of crimps which is often favored by those with shorter wingspans. However, both ways demand some serious cranking. You do get a decent shake after that, though the final bit of exposed climbing to the anchors may set you adrift from your redpoint.
